round is sponsored by td ameritrade. s m? >>> today ben bernanke our valiant fed chief reaffirmed his pledge to keep the interest rates down. let me give you the basic cramer english translation. ben's once again saying buy dividend stocks, high yields. because if you want income from your investments dividends are going to be the only game in town for years to come. bernanke is promising that the returns from bonds will be puny. same thing with cds. he can make that promise. you need to swap in the dividend stocks. that's why we'll introduce you to prologis. it's a global real estate interest trust. they specialize in distribution space for customers that do business in multiple countries. that's why some of the biggest customers, dhl, amazon, pepsi -- pepsico and fedex. think of prologis as a logistics reit, one that sports a yield, exactly the kind of dividend stock you want in this low interest rate environment. it's rallied since the beginning of the year, but lately it's pulled back three points. it could be giving you a good entry point here. first though, before making any dec

fixed the mortgages and that's a big part of the problem. >> you worked closely with ben bernanke. what kind of a job do you think ben bernanke has done? >> i think ben, like everyone in the crisis has done what he thinks is right and i think he was heroic during the crisis. i worry now, though, that he's continuing these very accommodating monetary policies which have, i think, tremendous risk and there's just no evidence that they do much good for our domestic economy. >> so you don't like qe3? >> i think it's a very bad idea. inflation risk and the incentives to take risks are significant. >> former fdic chairman sheila bair. >>> we'll be right back. when it comes to getting my family to eat breakfast, i need all the help i can get. i tell them, "come straight to the table." i say, "it's breakfast time, not playtime."
